As I conjectured below, the Mark Savage art in question is NOT from PROMETHEUS, confirmed by several reliable sources. To the best of my knowledge, the information regarding the Tweets still stands.
This said, the Savage art is still pretty cool...
A sharp-eyed reader named John sent us a note regarding a few Tweets he recently noticed, both pertaining to PROMETHEUS, Ridley Scott's "is it/?isn't it?" ALIEN project.
Seems Marcus Fairs' Twitter stream (HERE) reveals an interesting tidbit via a message which read as follows:
Pinewood Studios have been in touch - they want to borrow some of our watches for the new Ridley Scott movie.
To get a better sense of what he's talking about, you can click HERE to access Deezen Watch Store. Very hyper-modern, not necessarily "ALIENy" in appearance. At least, not the kind of ALIENy many of us have been, and still may be, expecting.
In a similar vein, THIS Tweet by Luxxbox indicates that their "Brainwash" series of tables will be a part of PROMETHEUS as well. You can find images of these Brainwash tables HERE. What kind of name is "Brainwash" for a table, anyway?
John also noticed that conceptual artist Matt Savage has posted a few mysterious images on his website - Savage is working on PROMETHEUS, having previously worked on X-MEN: FIRST CLASS and THE DARK KNIGHT.
There is a spacesuit design and mining-type platform featured in Savage's portfolio that I'm pretty sure come from the DOCTOR WHO episodes "The Impossible Planet" and "The Satan Pit" (I have a 12" David Tennant in a spacesuit action figure sitting next to my computer which looks just like THIS particular piece of concept art). However, there are some other selections on the site which don't seem as immediately recognizable - John wonders if they might be from PROMETHEUS? Rather doubting someone would be posting artwork from the film, even already rejected pieces, this soon - but who knows? See them HERE, HERE, and HERE.
More as we know more.
